Industry Forum with SaskPower

Our annual Industry Forum with SaskPower was held on October 24, 2016 in Regina.  The agenda included SaskPower updates on procurement, transmission services, and power production. An added bonus was a Priority Saskatchewan update from the VP of Priority Saskatchewan, Ron Dedman.

SaskPower will be investing about $1 Billion per year to meet the needs of the future, moving to a goal of 50% renewables by 2030.

SaskPower started the Forum with a “Thank You” to ACEC-SK for demonstrating leadership. Based on feedback from ACEC-SK about a recent competition, SaskPower was provided the opportunity to change the competition in a fair manner, respecting industry expertise and knowledge. The partnership that ACEC-SK and SaskPower has is a model for how SaskPower could interact with industry as a whole.

The procurement updates included:

Overall feedback was very positive with all of the attendees agreeing that the forum continues to deliver value.
